Verna McClain, Texas nurse accused of murder and baby abduction, had miscarried
(CBS/AP) SPRING, Texas - Authorities say Texas nurse Verna McClain, the woman accused of killing a young mother and abducting a 3-day-old boy, had suffered a recent miscarriage.
Officials in Montgomery County say McClain had told her fiance' she had given birth to his child. After she had a miscarriage, McClain allegedly killed Kala Golden and abducted Keegan Golden from outside a pediatrician's office in suburban Houston. Keegan was found unharmed hours later with McClain's sister.
The sheriff's office said Wednesday that McClain tried to represent Keegan as her own child. Her sister allegedly told authorities that McClain had plans to "do the adoption" after taking Keegan.
McClain now faces a capital murder charge and is being held without bail. Her fiance', who was not identified, is being interviewed by authorities.
